How Does a Course Work?
Each New Jersey Real Estate Continuing Education course is divided into lessons that take about 20–30 minutes on the average. Each lesson consists of text with multiple choice questions mixed in. The text is presented one small, easy–to–understand sentence or paragraph at a time. After a few screens of text, you will answer a few questions about what you have read. As you progress through the lesson, the learning process keeps track of how you are doing on the questions. After all the text is presented, the computer will go back to the questions you missed or had problems with and review them in random order. You’ll keep working on the lesson until you’ve answered all the questions correctly on two occasions. At that point, the lesson will be marked as complete on the main menu. You can quit a lesson at any time and a bookmark will save your place, so you don’t have to repeat work you’ve already done when you return to a lesson.

All the lessons for the course are completed online. Each hour of approved credit will take approximately one hour of computer time to complete.
